so FOX's 'mistakes' are unintentional?
i don't think so. maybe you missed this....
In a peculiar and suspicious chain of events, Fox News ran an article by commentator Todd Starnes with the provocative headline “Saudi National Questioned in Boston was on Terror Watch List.” There was no evidence in the article affirming the title’s allegation other than Starnes’ assertion that “sources have told me.”
Starnes went on to say that his sources alleged that “Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi had been deemed inadmissible” for entry into the United States because he was engaged, or likely to become engaged, in terrorist activity.“Two additional sources,” Starnes said,“have confirmed to me that Ali Alharbi is set to be deported as early as this week.”
The article also notes that national security officials, including Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, have denied the reports and stated explicitly that Alharbi is not being deported, nor was anyone else with any connection to the Boston marathon bombings. All of the chatter in the right-wing media about this was definitively debunked days ago.
Despite the dismissals by Napolitano and others of these rumors, Starnes weaves a speculative tale of innuendo that he fails to back up with any substance. The plot of this potboiler is aligned closely with Glenn Beck’s recent foray into the same wilds of reckless slander. Beck has been titillating his fans for several days with promises of jaw-dropping revelations that he literally described as the most important story in the history of the country. His pledge to unveil the sordid details today went conspicuously unfulfilled.
But here’s where the plot thickens. Beck’s delusional ravings might have been supported in some small measure by the article posted by Starnes. Mind you, Starnes did not have any better proof than Beck that some untoward activity was taking place, but at least his column could be cited by Beck as a rather useless and circular corroboration – and, in fact, it was. Which makes it all the more curious that Fox News made the column disappear. The link currently returns a “No Results Found” page. Making matters worse, Starnes also posted the article on the conservative Townhall web site, where it was also scrubbed.[Note: Both pages remain in Google's cache and can be accessed here: Fox News cache --- Townhall cache]
What can explain this odd self-censorship by two separate, unaffiliated web sites? The articles simply vanished with no comment or correction. Was there a discovery that they were so far off base that they put the publishers in jeopardy of being sued for libel? If so, simply removing them would not be an effective defense without an apology for any harm done. It would more likely serve to prove that they had an awareness of the potential for harm and sought to cover up their actions.

so the difference between FOX and NBC.....NBC will admit it's mistakes.
Hey douche, Glen Beck is not Fox news nor is he on it anymore.
How is it you're such an expert on Fox news?

A senior law enforcement official with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told TheBlaze Thursday that reports claiming the department was deporting Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi under section 212 3B (“security and related grounds”) and had opened an “event”(or file) on the Saudi Arabian national following the Boston attacks is “categorically false.”

The official also told TheBlaze that Alharbi was never in custody nor ever considered for deportation by ICE, but that the department does have a different Saudi national in custody being held on grounds unrelated to the Boston bombings.

Reports have indicated that both Alharbi and another Saudi student were wounded in Monday’s blasts. While in the hospital for treatment following the attack, Alharbi was considered a “person of interest” and was guarded by law enforcement officials. He is now, according to law enforcement officials, no longer considered a person of interest.

The senior ICE official confirmed to TheBlaze that the department does currently have a different Saudi Arabian national in custody, but that that person is in “no way affiliated” with the Boston attacks, nor is the detainee one of the two Saudi nationals who were wounded on Monday.

The ICE official add that the man currently in ICE’s custody is from the Boston area and is being detained on visa violation issues only.

“The person we have in custody is not Alharabi, is not being deported, and is not connected at all to the Boston attack,” the senior law enforcement official told TheBlaze.

While most people were horrified by New York State Senator Greg Ball’s call for torturing Boston Marathon bomb suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Sean Hannity didn’t have a discouraging word when he hosted Ball last night on Fox’ Hannity show. Ironically, Hannity was talking up “enhanced interrogation” and waterboarding on the very night that marked four years since he had said he’d undergo it for charity (to prove that it’s not torture) and yet hasn’t.

Fox News Uses Edited Obama Clip to Attack the President for Media Bias

Fox News responded to Obama’s criticism of their punishing of Republicans with an edited propaganda clip that confirmed the president’s point about their bias.

Fox and Friends attempted to counter Obama’s point that Fox News and Rush Limbaugh punish Republicans for bipartisanship by playing clips of Obama criticizing Fox and having contributor Peter Johnson Jr. label the president’s criticisms silly and bizarre. However, Fox News confirmed the accuracy of the president’s criticism by selectively editing video of Obama to create a deceptive, misleading, and very partisan impression.

http://www.politicususa.com/fox-news-proves-o...

One of the clips that Fox used was of President Obama at a 2011 University of Maryland town hall saying,“If you are on the right, then you’re only reading the Wall Street Journal editorial page and watching FOX News.”

The edited clips gave the impression that the president was singling out Fox News.

What Fox and Friends didn’t play was the entire quote. What What Obama said in full was,“You’ve got a media that has become much more splintered. So those of you who are of a Democratic persuasion are only reading The New York Times and watching MSNBC —(laughter)— and if you are on the right, then you’re only reading the Wall Street Journal editorial page and watching FOX News.(Laughter.) And if that’s where you get your information, just from one side, if you never even have to hear another argument, then over time you start getting more dug in into your positions.”

FOX fail. again.

abortion and gay rights?
5% actually interested sounds about right. the rest of us....big deal. who cares. just 5% of us who're more interested in what everyone else does then in their own actions care about imposing their will upon others. too bad they'll never get it done.
Not all conservatives are against abortion or gay marriage, you make it sound like they are.

How much Fox news do you watch? If the answer is what I think it is, you're merely a blathering parrot getting sound clips from scumbags like MEDIA matters or Chris mathews.

Every business, every person, every organization makes mistakes. Yet it is when a news organization intentionally lies and gets caught that things get interesting. But, further, it is when that same organization repeats the lying over decades, gets caught and keeps apologizes calling it a 'mistake' that the facade becomes thin enough to see through. This is where Liberal Media sits today with NBC being used as only one example of many.

You, of course, don't like FOX and will use any mistakes to trump up your Conspiracy Theories from the Left.

Very predictable and completely expected. A skunk can't change its stripes, after all.

Fox makes it official

The phrase “fair and balanced” must, these days, produce a smirk among the reporters, editors, news personalities and brass over at Fox News. What few liberals and/or Democrats were working for Fox are pretty much gone now, leaving only the network’s tilt to the GOP, a bias that was recently confirmed by the million-dollar donation given to the Republican Governor’s Association by Fox’s owner News Corp.

Beyond Fox News

Meet the post-movement conservatives.

Perhaps post-movement conservatism won’t accomplish much in practical political terms, but in nurturing a fertile intellectual tradition it may well do more good for the country than all the political campaigns of the last decade.

Fox News Tops All Cable For 1st Time Since 2005
By DOMINIC PATTEN | Tuesday April 23, 2013 @ 8:37am PDT
Fox News Channel’s coverage of the bombing at the Boston Marathon last week propelled the network to the top of the cable rankings for the first time in nearly a decade. In both total day and primetime for the week of April 15-April 21, the News Corp-owned news network pulled ahead of usually top-ranked USA Network. Excluding election coverage last year, the last time Fox News was in the top position was August 2005, when Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. In primetime, FNC garnered 2.874 million viewers on average for the week compared with No. 2 USA’s 2.621 million. CNN also climbed the cable ladder to finish No. 3 with 1.985 million viewers overall on average. History Channel was in fourth with 1.937 million viewers and A&E was fifth with 1.928 million.
This will give sonicfiller full pants tonight.
